Finding another perspective

With this T4T tutorial, students determine and actively seek alternative perspectives to enhance their understanding of an issue. They develop an understanding of the importance of recognizing that differing perspectives on a topic or issue may exist; determining which perspectives might most significantly broaden understanding of an issue; and planning and carrying out appropriate steps to find another perspective. This tutorial includes instructional suggestions for teachers (introducing the strategy, practicing the strategy, reinforcing the strategy, applying the strategy to everyday teaching, and assessing use of the strategy) and resources for students (introductory activities, data charts, student guide and self-assessment rubric).
